* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: Pretty much in any comedy that started after 1992 has this is happening to husbands by their wife. There has been a growing backlash to this DoubleStandard [[note]]the father getting abused or pushed around is deemed "okay", but the mother getting treated like that would create accusations of misogynistic undertones[[/note]] in TheNewTens from both genders and more modern shows have been subverting, averting or deconstructing it in an attempt to discredit it, but this trope is still often played straight and a widely defended belief in RealLife, even among law enforcement.

* StockScream: The (in)famous Wilhelm Scream in particular. Moviegoers have [[BrokenBase divisive]] reactions to it, but sound editors continue to use it, both ironically and unironically, either as an homage to the many other films that have used it, or because it's just too damn fun.

* DawsonCasting: The tradition of casting young adult actors to portray teenagers is often parodied and scrutinized, with aversions being more common now than they used to be. Sometimes, however straight uses are more convenient (adult actors are less of a hassle to deal with and [[AbilityOverAppearance are usually better actors]]) or unavoidable (teen characters are shown nude/having sex, the actor starts off being roughly the same age as the character, but the in-universe timespan doesn't match the real-life timespan so the actor's age surpasses the character's age). The [[Analysis/DawsonCasting analysis page]] goes into more depth on why Dawson Casting is still used.

* LukeIAmYourFather: Parodies can be traced back as early as Creator/JaneAusten. Refuses to die because its too convenient (not to mention [[StockEpilepticTrees a common insane fan theory]]). However, using it as a direct parody or homage to the [[Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack Trope Namer]] nowadays ''will'' be met with [[DiscreditedTrope a groan and a "Not again!" from the audience]].

* SantaClaus: He remains omnipresent in most [[ChristmasEpisode Christmas-related episodes]] simply by the power of inertia. Unlikely to go away anytime soon, since he is so firmly rooted in the public consciousness and pop culture.
* SchoolBullyingIsHarmless: If only due to ''Take A Break'' magazines and the general 'real life' magazine genre, it's unlikely to go away anytime soon, and so survives in limbo from becoming a DeadHorseTrope, or indeed a DiscreditedTrope.
* ScoringPoints: Recent games removed points entirely, or goes as far as to even ''mock'' the trope. Yet even today, many casual games and shmups still play it straight (mainly as a sop to hardcore players so they can compare scores). Non-redemption arcade games also still focus on scoring points to this day, with the exception of fighting games, as it's an easy way of showing off your superior skill (or luck).

* TemptingFate: No one is ever surprised anymore whenever something bad happens after this trope is invoked, yet it's unlikely that writers will ever stop using it nonironically.
